Lets see how its changed!

I've italicised the new cards.

Elf Deck
Mythics
1x Nissa Revane (new)
Rares
4x Elvish Champion
4x Immaculate Magistrate
2x Joraga Warcaller
3x Elvish Archdruid (new)
Uncommons
4x Keen Sense
1x Quest for Renewal
4x Jagged-Scar Archers (plus 1)
4x Imperious Perfect

Commons
4x Silhana Ledgewalker
4x Fyndhorn Elves
3x Llanowar Elves (plus 1)
2x Arbor Elf (new)
2x Wellwisher
2x Seeker of Skybreak (new)
2x Rancor
Lands
13x Forest (minus 7)

Removed
1x Aspect of Mongoose
2x Canopy Cover
1x Nature's Spiral
3x Drove of Elves
7x Forest

The 2 Arbor Elves, 1 Llanowar Elf, 2 Seeker of Skybreak and 3 Elvish Archdruids combined with the existing mana elves remove the need for 20 lands. Of course the deck still really needs a draw with enough cards to hit 2 or 3 mana, which can require mulligans.

The deck has also lost a lot of shroud. The deck's main weakness has always been boardwiping, which shroud didn't help against. All the shroud really achieved was to slow the deck down, so it has been removed.

Some kind of global Hexproof / Shroud cards would be extremely useful to the deck, as would methods to get more reliable mana without using up tons of cards.

I wonder if land search would be a good option.

Nissa isn't that good really, except as a Wellwisher alternative. I don't use Nissa's Chosen, and its very difficult to use the ultimate. Maybe I should put Nissa's Chosen in? (although they are just vanilla Elves, no utility)

Yes, the deck has 17 Elves that make other Elves bigger.
